Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is a clinical but mostly radiological diagnosis with a wide variety of etiologies that is commonly underdiagnosed and missed due to the complete reversibility of its course. The pathophysiology lies in the raised blood pressure that disrupts the internal autoregulation within brain. Ours is a patient who presented as such, is a diagnosed case of B-thalassemia major. One previous author reported of PRES in gravid women with abnormal blood picture which being a rarity interested us in reporting this case . Diagnosis now is more MR based but treatment yet remains elusive and mostly symptomatic.
